TECHNICAL - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you have a minimum wall thickness for each material?
Should I design solid parts, or can I work with you to create hollowed out structures with lattice infill?
Talk to us about hollow parts and lattice infills and we will advise what is the best option for your part. We encourage complex shapes, so we do suggest if keeping a part solid, then only keep the material that is needed for the performance and strength of the part. Lattice infill is a very effective method to remove a lot of weight from a part (and often cost if left solid) without the designer needing to create complex and time-consuming pocketing or cavities.
Does a lattice add much cost?
With the infill, how do I specify its style and density.
What shape is the lattice?
Can you take a customer’s solid part and determine the wall thickness and lattice?
Can I create variable wall thickness parts – both with and without lattice?
Do I need a drain hole for internal cavities – if so what size?
What affects part distortion – i.e. total size / solid thickness / sudden thickness changes / overhangs that droop?
Do you add support structure to prevent part drooping or distortions during the print?
Do I need to orient the part in the way it will be printed or does RAM do this?
Can you print a thread, or should I print a tapping hole and cut the thread myself?
What acurracy does the process achieve?
Accuracy is +/- 50 microns, however, there are some variations to this, mostly to do with the shape of the part. Rapid changes to the part shape can have an effect on accuracy and also the part will have some support material on it. This is a structure made at the same time as the part to support certain angles etc. Where this support has been attached, there will be a difference in accuracy.
What about quality?
We tensile test or tension test with every build. Please click here for more information.
